I put it to you: Sea to Sky locs (Sunshine Coast,Squamish, Whistler, Pemberton) are better than locs from any where else!

Hauck is the epitome of street dirt park mtb . Should be a nominee for the MTB Hall of Fame

When this topic was brought up recently by the local trail group (Bend), one of the most prominent builders posted a statement he received from a National Forest Service employee stating that these qualify as motorized vehicles and by no means are permitted on NFS multi-use non motorized trails. FWIW motorized vehicle trespassing on federally protected land carries a max sentence of $2000 and 6 months in jail, at least around here. Last I heard the NFS and BLM are working on addressing the e-bike issue in greater detail, but there doesn't seem to be any plan to allow them on biking trails on federal land.

This is a bad idea for MTB. Are the stupid things fun? Of course they are... So is cocaine. So is unprotected sex with sketchy skanks from the bar. So it driving real fast on crowded streets...Doesn't mean it's a good idea. It'd also be fun to blast my KX450F up the local MTB trails... It's also fun to shuttle all of the super crowded local MTB trails on DH bikes, But most people don't (or they get a lecture and possibly a sock in the nose) 'cause it's totally a bad idea and bad for MTB. Roll down the road a bit and shuttle where it's legal (or, at least permitted) or hit the resorts...or drop the same amount of $krilla that you'd drop on a used DH bike on a used MX bike and go ride one of the various moto tracks or trails systems within and hour's drive for a 1/3 the price of a lift ticket.

What bums me out is that you guys are "kinda" promoting this. This will allow the exact people that probably shouldn't be out on the trails to get out on the trails without paying some dues and learning a bit about the way it all works. This is a motorized bike--any way you slice it--and the wrong clowns are gonna ride them on MTB trails. Especially if shops and internet sources start 'kinda' promoting them. F Specialized...

How are there no comments on this? Been a while since I left something, but man, WC speeds with MX-sized jumps, and no one is fired up enough to type something?

I for one, am fired up, and this is ridiculous.

Sucks for Tucker there isn't a dog category at Sea Otter DH.

Exactly!!! Hopping them up the first thing ppl are going to do! I've lost sleep over this..We ARE going to loose trails! Buy the time the smoke settles it will be to late.
And the new e-biker's won't care, they will just move on to destroy the next sport/lifestyle. Shame on Specialized for jumping on this bandwagon!

The number of people that are reacting positively to this article is disturbing. Where do you draw the line? This will threaten trail access in the US if it catches on and e-bikes are indistinguishable from normal bikes to the lay person. If I knew there would be no backlash I would have no issues with this - my wife could keep up and group rides might not take all day. But we have worked too hard over the last 20 years for access to risk it. And you know there will be a hack to set the bike to roost mode...
